London Grammar is playing Rock Werchter 2018. And so Friday 6 July –festival day 2- can boast its first particularly beautiful name. London Grammar is all about inspirational electro-indie pop. Of the kind that reaches deep into the soul.

The voice of Hannah Reid is like a balm for the soul which heals, even through the radio. Hannah Reid (vocals), Dan Rotham (guitar) and Dominic ‘Dot’ Major (drums/keyboards) met at the University of Nottingham before deciding to head to London. London Grammar made their debut in December 2010, in a small pub in Camden. After James Blake, Florence + The Machine and The xx, the burgeoning London scene had found itself another great talent. In 2013 ‘Strong’ and ‘Wasting My Young Years’ are responsible for London Grammar’s breakthrough and lead to Rock Werchter and a sold out Forest National. After the lightening start and intense tours the trio returns to the peace of an everyday existence. For album number two they collaborate with a whole host of prestigious producers, including Grammy and Oscar winner Paul Epworth (Florence + The Machine, Adele). ‘Truth Is A Beautiful Thing’ (2017) is characterised by its almost cinematic nature. As usual the songs are blood-curdlingly beautiful. London Grammar promptly sells out the Antwerp Lotto Arena twice. Rock Werchter on Friday 6 July is the logical and well deserved next step in their ascension.

Five names are in at present. Queens of The Stone Age and Gorillaz will be there on Thursday 5 July, London Grammar will be performing on Friday 6 July, Pearl Jam on Saturday 7 July, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds on Sunday 8 July. More names to follow soon.
